Blog Statistics

I am always interested to find out which are my most popular posts and where in the world my readers are. Blogger keeps stats for me, and this page is an overview of those statistics. It is my intention to update this annually (or thereabouts). Most recent update 1st Jan 2018.

Popular posts.
This is a table showing my most popular posts. I'm tracking the total views for posts which have been viewed more than 300 times for now.

Google Analytics Report

I have now got a full year of Google Analytics data, which I am using for a more in depth analysis of my blog readers. Key statistics are:

Two thirds of the sessions during 2017 were for new visitors, and one third of sessions were from returning visitors. New visitors look at an average of 2.5 pages per visit for an average of 1min 20. Returning visitors look at an average of 3.4 pages per visit for an average of 2min 10.

The top ten locations in 2017, accounting for 88% of sessions were:

Country Sessions Pages Pages/ session Average Session
United States 1373 3089 2.25 01:06
United Kingdom 1205 3723 3.09 01:51
Canada 612 1952 3.19 02:02
Australia 247 753 3.05 02:03
Germany 128 356 2.78 01:31
France 104 268 2.58 00:37
Netherlands 96 340 3.54 02:39
Belgium 91 641 7.04 04:03
Pakistan 76 95 1.25 01:07
India 74 164 2.22 01:17

Over half of the sessions were from USA and UK.

Half of readers use a mobile to view, a third use a desktop, with the rest using a tablet. Most popular devices are iPhone and iPad, accounting for about 40% of all sessions.

Roughly, 40% of readers arrive through a search engine, 30% arrive directly, 20% arrive through social media, and most of the rest are referrals from other websites. The most common social media channels are facebook (700 sessions) and twitter (200 sessions) accounting for just under 20% of all sessions. I'm very pleased to see that most of the referrals and are links to my blog through other HSP pages, accounting for about 6% of all sessions.

There are some interesting differences between Blogger and Google Analytics - Russia and the USA have may fewer page views on Google, whereas the UK has many more.
